How To Get News Coverage

Small press publishers: What makes the difference between an item that will get news coverage, previews, and interviews and one that won’t? A lot of publishers have no idea what to submit to the press, how to submit it, and why they are being overlooked for coverage. Comics journalist Rik Offenberger (First Comics News, Archie Comics) moderates this panel on just what it takes to get coverage, with the comic journalists themselves telling you what they are looking for in submissions. They include Alex Raymond (Hollywood Gone Geek), Francis Sky (First Comics News, Massacre Twins), Glenn Hauman (ComicMix), Heidi MacDonald (The Beat), J. C. Vaughn (Gemstone Publishing), Jez Ibelle (First Comics News), Josh Waldrop (Red Gorilla), Rob Salkowitz (ICv2, Forbes), and Tanya Tate (First Comics News, JustaLottaTanya.com).Also, independent comics creators Ed Catto (Captain Action,Bonfire Agency) and Holly Golightly (BroadSword Comics), explain what worked for them and what to avoid when looking for press coverage.
